Radiesse Dermal Filler 


Dermal fillers such as Radiesse currently rank as the second most popular cosmetic procedure in the US after Botox. The FDA approved Radiesse med spa filler injection is typically performed for cosmetic reasons, which means that it will not be covered by medical insurance. Therefore, cost of Radiesse becomes an important starting point for many patients.

At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss various aspects of Radiesse dermal filler procedure, including its estimated costs. The first concern of the provider will be to help the patient make a well-considered decision.

Rejuvenate medical spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Radiesse to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other neighborhoods and cities in this part of Southern California.

Price Tag Comparison

Innovations in non-surgical med spa procedures have led to the development of a variety of facial rejuvenation treatment options, including laser, RF and ultrasound based procedures.

Radiesse dermal filler treatment is likely to be more cost-effective than many other facial anti-aging procedures, considering the cost of injections and the longevity of results. As a result, many Americans now prefer dermal fillers such as Radiesse over various other skin rejuvenation options.

Radiesse can prove to be more cost-effective even in comparison to several other dermal filler injections. This is because Radiesse results can sustain for about a year to 18 months, while many other dermal fillers only create results that will last for about six months to a year. The patient should evaluate the cost of Radiesse in the light of its sustainability of results.

The treatment provider can perform Radiesse injections in a med spa environment, without the need for general anesthesia or sedation. Unlike surgical treatments, Radiesse injections do not involve the costs of a surgery center or an anesthesiologist’s fee. Radiesse may only involve one office appointment, while light or heat based treatments usually involve multiple appointments.

Post-injection downtime is negligible in case of Radiesse injections. This may prove to be an additional cost-saver for working people who may want to go back to work immediately after the procedure.

Cost Factors

The cost of Radiesse injectable procedure may marginally vary between two med spas and even between two patients at the same med spa. One of the major factors impacting the cost is the location of the med spa. Prime urban centers and main metropolitan areas typically have higher costs due to higher real estate expenses and other overheads.

Patients should also look at the skill and experience of the treatment provider, the quality standards and best practices maintained at the med spa, and the level of personalized care and services provided. In any case, the patient should ideally choose the best provider for their needs, and costs should be a secondary consideration in a procedure such as Radiesse.

Extent of Treatment

The actual sticker price of Radiesse will be determined according to the actual volume of filler gel used for a patient.

Some patients may require a follow-up treatment after three months, which will have additional costs. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other communities and cities in this part of the nation for Radiesse.

Areas of Treatment

radiesse-handOne of the advantages with Radiesse is that its higher longevity of results. Unlike most other non-animal filler injections which produce results lasting for about six months to a year, Radiesse can create results that sustain for 12 to 18 months.

Specific Benefits

What are dermal filler injections like Radiesse? | Los Angeles Med SpaRadiesse is one of the popular facial dermal filler injections to add volume to the depleted areas of the face and stimulate fresh collagen production. This FDA approved facial rejuvenation med spa procedure has calcium hydroxylapatite as its main ingredient. It is designed to produce natural looking and longer lasting results with a single in-office injection treatment.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by the terrific and astute Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Radiesse and other dermal filler injections for facial rejuvenation.

The procedure is performed by skilled treatment providers in a customized manner to achieve targeted outcomes. Rejuvenate medical spa provides Radiesse injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities and neighborhoods in this part of The Golden State.

 

Calcium Hydroxylapatite

Synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is a biocompatible material, which has been in use in the field of medicine for over two decades. Microspheres of 25-45 microns diameter of this material are suspended in a gel for cohesive, sub-dermal injectable delivery. The FDA has approved Radiesse facial augmentation filler for long lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.

Radiesse med spa filler may also be used to address facial fat loss occurring due to disease or other factors. Diverse facial regions can be injected to reduce or enhance specific facial features, such as glabellar lines, nasolabial folds, sub-dermal support of the brows, nose, tear troughs, lips, perioral region, oral commisures, marionette lines, and chin. It is also sometime used to mitigate the effect of saucerized acne scars.

Results with Radiesse injections will typically last for about 12 to 18 months, which is longer than many other popular dermal fillers. CaHA microspheres support extended longevity, biocompatibility and a low rate of side effects.

 

How does a CaHA filler work?

When CaHA is injected in the form of tiny microspheres, it acts as a scaffold that helps in the formation of new tissue similar to its surrounding environment. The deposited particles of CaHA inside the deep dermis support the production of new collagen and fibroblastic in-growth, without calcification. In that sense, CaHA mimics the environment into which it is deposited.

Once a Radiesse syringe is opened, the unused material after the first treatment can be recapped and retained for the same patient for up to three months for future administration. However, the provider should ensure that no visible air bubbles are formed inside the syringe to avoid future hardening of the material.

 

Results

Results will vary depending on the patient’s facial condition prior to the treatment and the amount of treatment performed. Patients should be informed that some facial aging signs will be mitigated but will not disappear. Patients seeking reduction of nasolabial folds, vertical glabellar lines and deep furrows can usually achieve the best results with Radiesse.

Radiesse is also a good solution to correct facial asymmetries, depending on the required volume. Some lesions such as acne scars can be improved with this filler. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Radiesse injections.

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Consultation | Los Angeles Med Spa | EncinoBotox ranks among the most sought after med spa non-surgical procedures in the US for individuals who want to reduce the effect of facial aging and restore a smoother, younger looking face.

While most patients have some familiarity with Botox, it is important for the treatment provider to educate the patient about its benefits and limitations in an objective manner and compare it with other treatment options that the patient may be considering.  

The patient should use the Botox consultation opportunity to ask questions and clarify their concerns and doubts about Botox as well as learn about the qualifications of the med spa treatment provider. When a patient approaches Botox treatment with complete clarity, they will feel more confident about their decision and achieve better satisfaction from the results.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by the committed and profound Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Botox injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding cities and neighborhoods in this part of Southern California.

 

Appreciating the Patient’s Needs

A dedicated Botox provider will first try to understand why the patient wants to receive Botox treatment, and what exactly about their facial appearance is troubling them. The provider will encourage the patient to share their inherent cosmetic goals and expectations, and use that feedback to create customized Botox injection plan.

In some cases, the patient may want to achieve a subtle lift to the sagging facial skin, or may have deeper facial creases in areas where Botox may not be very effective. The med spa treatment provider may recommend facial filler injections in conjunction with Botox in such cases. The provider will also apprise the patient about the longevity of Botox results and the potential risks and side effects involved.

 

Being Realistic

Botox is a simple, in-office treatment involving minimal to no discomfort and downtime, but the downside is that it can only produce temporary results that will sustain for about three to four months. Furthermore, Botox can only benefit in improving fine lines and moderate wrinkles formed by dynamic facial muscles that create facial movement and expression. Botox is not meant to add volume to the depleted areas of the face.

During the consultation, the provider will inform the patient about these limitations of Botox and help them form realistic expectations. Some providers may also present Botox before and after photos during the consultation to let the patient see for themselves what Botox can or cannot do for them. Testimonials of previous patients can also provide insights about Botox from the perspective of actual patients.

 

Determining Candidacy

The provider will determine the patient’s suitability for Botox procedure during the consultation. If the patient has received Botox injections in the past six months, they may have to wait for some time before another treatment. The degree of facial skin laxity, weakness in forehead muscles and droopiness around the eyelids will also be assessed.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women will be advised to avoid Botox treatment. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox.

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Risks and Safety | Los Angeles Med SpaBotox is an FDA approved injectable treatment offered by a med spa to mitigate the signs of aging from the face and restore a more youthful look. High safety profile of Botox injections has made it the most popular non-surgical anti-aging cosmetic procedure in the US today.

However, some risks are going to be inherent to Botox, and the patient should be aware of these risks in order to make a well-informed choice. Botulinum toxin is a powerful biological agent, which can cause severe side effects if it is administered wrongly or in wrong volumes.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Botox injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other neighborhoods and communities across the horizon.

 

Potential Risks

Potential side effects of Botox treatment include pain or discomfort in the injection sites, swelling, bruising, redness, inflammation, bleeding and infection. Some of the symptoms may indicate an allergic reaction. If the patient experiences dizziness or difficulty in breathing, they must contact a physician promptly.

Some of the other known risks of this med spa injection procedure include muscle spasms, droopy eyelids, twitching, headache, neck pain, numbness in the injection areas, dry mouth, and fatigue. Some patients may have numbness due to muscle immobility, while others may experience muscle spasms where the Botox treatment has not been effective.

If the provider has wrongly administered the injections or delivered Botox medication in excess quantity, it may spread to unintended areas and create an adverse effect on the surrounding tissue. For example, when Botox is injected between the brows or near the upper eyelids, it may temporarily lead to drooping eyelids.

 

Other Complications

In rare cases, other complications with Botox may occur, particularly if the injections have been wrongly administered. These may include:

  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Cockeyed eyebrows
  • Drooling or crooked smile
  • Excessive tearing
  • Vision difficulties
  • General muscle weakness
  • Difficulty in speaking or swallowing
  • Weak bladder control

Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox treatment.

 

Minimizing the Risks

To minimize the risks of Botox, it is crucial to determine the right candidates. Botox should not be administered on people with one or more of the following conditions:

  • Allergic to one of the ingredients of Botox or its variants
  • Suffered from side effects of Botox or its variants in the past
  • Having a stubborn skin infection in the area to be injected
  • Suffering from ALS, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome or another disease that affects muscles or nerves
  • Asthma or chronic breathing troubles
  • Bleeding problems
  • Received a facial surgery recently
  • Planning to receive a facial surgery shortly
  • Weakness in forehead muscles
  • Unable to temporarily stop the use of blood thinners or NSAIDs

Pregnant and breastfeeding women should also avoid Botox. The patient should not massage the treated area for about 12 hours, and avoid lying down for about four hours after the injections.

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Procedure Steps | Los Angeles Med SpaFor the last several years, Botox has consistently ranked as the most popular cosmetic non-surgical med spa procedure in the US. At the time of initial consultation, the Botox treatment expert will explain the steps involved in the injection procedure.

Botox procedure can be performed in-office, and it usually completed in a single sitting of about 20 minutes. Patients can immediately return to their normal day’s work after that. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Botox injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities in this part of the country.

 

Learn about Botox

Before a patient has decided to go ahead with the Botox injections with a qualified treatment provider, they should acquire a basic understanding about Botox by reading about it on the provider’s website or talking to other patients who have previously received Botox. Once they have a reasonable familiarity with the procedure, they can make a better decision about receiving Botox treatment.

 

Choose a Treatment Provider

Once the patient done their own basic research about Botox treatment, they should select a dedicated med spa that is fully equipped to provide Botox injections in a safe and professional environment. If the practice is led by an experienced and board certified physician, they would typically maintain high quality standards and best practices, and follow the latest safety protocols.

 

Information Disclosure

During the Botox consultation, the patient should inform the provider about relevant details such as whether they have received Botox or similar injections in the last six months, and whether they are currently taking any anti-allergy pills, sleep medications or muscle relaxants. If the patient is using blood thinners or is a smoker, they may have to wait for a few days and stop using them before Botox injections can be administered.

 

Botox Appointment

It will only take a few minutes to administer the Botox injections, if the treatment is performed by an experienced Botox provider. The provider will identify the targeted sites and apply a mild cleanser to disinfect the area. Anesthesia is usually not necessary, but the provider may apply a topical numbing gel in the marked sites for better patient comfort.

The provider will then use a narrow gauge micro needle to inject Botox medication directly into the specific facial muscles that are creating wrinkles and fine lines. Frown lines and outer eye areas are commonly treated with Botox. An individual muscle may require one to three injections. Discomfort will be minimal because of the tiny size of the needles.

 

Post-Injection Care

Following the injectable procedure, the patient will receive a few simple tips for aftercare. They will be asked to avoid massaging around the treated areas for about 12 hours, and should also avoid lying down for about four hours after the Botox injections.

Direct sun exposure should be avoided for a few days in the treated areas. Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox injections.

Botox Before and After Photos

botox before and after pictures

According to the ASPS figures, Botox currently ranks as the most popular cosmetic non-surgical anti-aging procedure in the US. At the time of initial consultation, the certified Botox provider at a med spa will explain all about the treatment and may also present Botox before and after photographs before the patient.

The provider’s first goal will be to help the patient make an informed decision about Botox. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other cities in this part of the state have an opportunity to receive Botox injections at Rejuvenate Medical Spa, which is led by Dr. Bijan Farah.

What are Botox Before and After Images?

Before and after images in case of Botox injections refer to a pair or group of pictures pertaining to an earlier patient who has received the same treatment with successful results. The images include pictures taken prior to the treatment and after the treatment at a stage when the initial redness and swelling has dissipated and full effects of Botox injections are visible.

The med spa treatment provider will take care to ensure that the photographs are obtained with the patient’s consent and presented before new patients in an appropriate manner. The patient’s identity may be kept undisclosed as per the standard protocol. The Botox provider’s only purpose in this exercise is to use the before and after photos as a visual tool to show the potential effectiveness of Botox injectable treatment to new patients.

Benefits

When a new patient seeks Botox injections for the first time, they may be unsure about how the treatment will improve their facial aging lines and whether it will meet their personal aesthetic goals. Some patients may only require limited Botox treatment to improve frown lines and crow’s feet, but some others may also want Botox for non-label cosmetic uses in other areas of the face.

In some cases, Botox may be applied as an additional treatment in conjunction with another surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedure. In each situation, the patient will be in a better position to make the right choices when they have access to Botox before and after photos.

Keeping Reasonable Expectations

In any aesthetic procedure, the best satisfaction levels are achieved by patients who maintain a positive outlook and have clear aesthetic priorities and reasonable expectations. Therefore, an experienced Botox provider will prefer to present Botox before and after photos prior to the actual procedure.

Once the patient knows clearly what Botox can or cannot do for them, they can make a more informed decision. This eliminates the risk of any disappointments occurring later on to a great extent. Patients with realistic expectations will typically appreciate the final results better and feel more confident about their appearance.

Online Pictures

The treatment provider has the option to present Botox before and after photos on their practice website as well as disseminate them via social media to encourage more people to consider Botox injections. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox.

The real game changer here is virtual technology and the plastic surgery community jumped on board of this right from the outset. The advantages of this technology for patients is manifold. For one, patients never have to drive to the clinic to see pictures of Botox and so on. They do this from their office cubicle or at their own home with no one being the wiser.

Now when patients do schedule a consultation they are leaps and bounds ahead of where they would be without website pictures. This decreases the chances of any surprises and Dr. Bijan Farah can spend more time working on procedures and less time in meetings and consultations. Patients are less anxious now since they are more informed as well. Virtual technology is here to stay.

Botox Injections

botox before and after pictureBotox is an FDA approved injectable treatment to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face. This med spa procedure is ideally suited for individuals who want a minimally invasive solution to create a smoother and more youthful looking face. However, the patients should know that Botox can only create temporary improvements.

The wonderful aspect is that Botox treatment can be repeated in future for prolonged benefits. Dr. Bijan Farah provides Botox injections at his state of the art med spa. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive Botox at Rejuvenate medical spa.

Longevity of Results

An individual receiving Botox injections for the first time may expect to enjoy the results for anywhere between three to four months. The strength of botulinum toxin type A, which is the key ingredient in Botox, will mitigate as months go by, resulting in the muscle returning to its normal active state. Therefore, the lines and wrinkles related to that muscle will reappear on the face in three to four months.

Over a longer period of time, if the patient receives multiple Botox treatments under the guidance of an experienced provider at a qualified med spa, they can expect to have more sustainable results. The underlying facial muscles will become training to remain in a relaxed state due to repetitive Botox action over time. This will make the aging lines less conspicuous and results of Botox may last longer.

Individuals who regularly use Botox treatments over time may progressively need fewer treatments, or the gap between two treatments may increase. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other communities in this part of the country for Botox injections.

Variable Longevity

Botox results may last for a different length of time in different patients. A person with stronger facial muscles will typically form more visible frown lines. In this case, once the strength of botulinum toxin beings to reduce, the motion of the wrinkle forming muscle will be restore faster because the muscle is more resilient.

On the other hand, people with less robust facial muscles may sustain the results of Botox for a relatively longer period. Men usually have stronger facial muscles than women, and in their case the results may sustain for a slightly reduced period of time compared to women.

Repeating the Injections

Many patients want to prolong the effects of Botox with repeat treatments. If the patient does not want to have much gap between two treatments, they must keep a check on when the muscle movement seems to be returning back to its original motion. This movement may be noticeable before the actual muscle contraction and the deepening of the furrow between the brows.

In any case, patients should note that repeat treatments of Botox must only be taken in accordance with the doctor’s advice. The required gap between two treatments should be maintained. What volume of medication was administered in one treatment may also affect how long the results will sustain.

How much does Botox Cost? | Los Angeles Med Spa | Non-SurgicalBotox currently ranks as the most popular non-surgical med spa procedure in the US. One of the reasons behind its consistent popularity is that this facial rejuvenation treatment is relatively more affordable in comparison to several other surgical and non-surgical options.

Facial rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments are considered elective, and will not be covered under insurance. Therefore, cost becomes an important starting point for many patients when they are considering treatment options. Rejuvenate medical spa is a committed provider of a range of cutting edge cosmetic procedures, including Botox.

Led by the highly experienced Dr. Bijan Farah, Rejuvenate delivers the best standards of care at competitive prices to enable patients to attain their aesthetic goals in an affordable way. Rejuvenate med spa provides Botox injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Comparing the Costs

A wide range of judicious, proven, and appropriate non-surgical facial enhancement procedures are now available for both women and men. Each procedure offers its own unique value and comes with a specific dollar amount. As most of these treatment options are outside the scope of health insurance, it is logical for a patient to draw a judicious cost-benefit comparison and then make a well-considered decision.

Facial rejuvenation options in cosmetic surgery can cost thousands of dollars, and even non-invasive solutions involving ultrasound, laser or RF technologies can have significant costs. Deep chemical peels and dermal filler injections are also likely to cost more than Botox. Botox is often among the more affordable med spa treatment options creating safe and desirable outcomes.

 

Price Tag Variations

The monetary amount of Botox injectable procedure can sometimes vary from one med spa to another. Where the med spa is located, what are the kind of facilities and services it provides, whether it is managed by an experienced and board certified provider, and how trained and dedicated is the staff at the facility will make a difference to the overall costs of Botox treatment.

In some cases, the Botox treatment may even cost differently for two patients at the same practice. This will depend on the amount of treatment needed by a patient. If the patient wants improvement in multiple facial areas, more units of Botox medication may be required. On the other hand, if a patient only requires a minimal maintenance treatment, it will require a reduced quantity of Botox.

Under all circumstances, the patient should ideally choose a medical spa that prioritizes quality and safety, and offers personalized care and service to every patient. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox.

 

Sticker Price Computation

Many practices will determine the costs of Botox treatment on a per unit basis. But some practices may charge a price according to the location of the face that needs to be treated. Sometimes the provider or the manufacturer may offer special rebates on the cost price for a specified time period.

Facial Fillers | Dermal Fillers | Injectables | San Fernando | Calabasas CABotox is the most recognizable and widely accepted non-surgical facial anti-aging med spa procedure today. The FDA initially approved Botox in 2002 for cosmetic reduction of frown lines between the brows and on the forehead, and then additionally approved it for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes.

Over the years, Botox experts have used this injectable treatment very successfully for numerous non-label cosmetic purposes as well. Ever since it was originally approved by the FDA, Botox continues to rank as the number one cosmetic procedure in the US.

Rejuvenate medical spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Botox injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other cities and even communities in the region.

 

How does Botox Work?

The key ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin type A, which is one the most potent biological substances in the world. Botox contains this neurotoxin in an extremely diluted form to achieve the desired effects. It is directly injected into the overactive facial muscle, which is causing the wrinkle formation.

The toxin will act quickly to sever the communication between the nerve and the muscle, resulting in muscle relaxation. This will enable the wrinkle on the surface to gradually fade away. The effects of Botox injections can sustain for about three to four months with a single treatment. The procedure can be performed in a med spa without involving anesthesia or any specific recovery.

 

Candidacy

Patients between the ages of 18 and 65 are eligible to receive Botox injections. An individual who is unhappy about the appearance of minor facial wrinkles and fine lines caused due to muscular activity, and wants to avoid surgery, may be an ideal candidate for Botox.

Busy mothers and working people usually prefer Botox over other options because it involves minimal risk of complications and almost no downtime. Pregnant or breastfeeding women and individuals with known neuromuscular disorders should avoid Botox injections.

 

Treatment Areas

 

Eyes

The area around the eyes will typically develop dynamic wrinkles caused due to repetitive muscle movement and facial expressions. Botox acts well on these wrinkles, and can be used effectively to rejuvenate the eye appearance.

The patient will not experience any loss of sensation or numbness in the treated area because Botox will only impact the muscle nerves and not the nerves of sensation.

 

Brows and Forehead

Activities such as smiling, laughing and frowning can cause the wrinkling of the brow over a period of time. Botox has been approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.

Both women and men can enjoy the benefits of Botox and restore a youthful looking brow. Botox can also remove the forehead lines to a significant extent because the treatment works effectively on horizontal lines.

 

Jaw Contouring

One of the recent uses of Botox is jaw contour enhancement in people with a square shaped face. Botox will help to reduce the size of masseter muscles, resulting in a gently curved jaw and cheek.

Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other cities across Southern California for Botox.
